I feel like I will be going with the 3440 x 1440 60 Hz monitor because I think 60 Hz is enough for me. With a 1080 it will be able to play all modern games.
It also keeps rotating in-between shots
That is becoming a problem with this case too, but nothing a quick clean doesn't fix...
Very nice build of yours too, I'm envious of that paint job. But then, there is nothing stopping me getting a custom paint job either, in fact I may do that.
Your build is very nice too, I was debating getting the NZXT Phantom. Such a nice case
Yeah I most likely will get a 144 or 120 Hz monitor in a few years when I get the upgrade.
It really is destroying games at the moment and will hopefully continue it for a few years.
Thanks for the congrats.
It really does.
Playing games that I used to play at: Low, 30 FPS , Now they're at, High/ Ultra, 60 FPS a.
Such a huge improvement
I love it.
Hello again Meithen.
The time has come and I have purchased my parts for the new computer and will be building it as soon as the parts arrive.
Will hope to get it up on here within a few months, possibly by February
This is the part list that I purchased - http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Omnitech_Nz/saved/FwfnTW
Hope you are loving the awesome addition you made to this awesome site and of course merry Christmas to all
No problem, The information is fairly invalid now as I have finally ordered my graphics card. A Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970. Looking forward to completing the build and posting it on this website in a few months or so when it is finished.
Hmm, might consider that over the gigabyte that I have in mind at the moment. Thanks for the info.
Looks like a very nice build, how is the EVGA graphics card cause I've heard it can have some serious noise problems. Love the lighting and cables too. Enjoy the build
Asrock, Gigabyte and MSI seem to have nice motherboards. I'd probably start there
Yep, Looks nice. Couldn't really afford the step up to the NH-D15
I am actually getting a Noctua NH-D14. I decided that the colour wasn't too bad
I have succumbed to the pressure and I am getting a Noctua NH-D14
2 980's will destroy a Titan absolutely, no questions asked
Any more questions you want answering I'm always happy to help
Looks quiet... He he
Looks good, Will look into
I know that would be an option but I want this thing to look impressive (probably 2 fin stacks would be ideal)
The 290 is almost a perfect match for the 970 but yes personally I would get the 970 as it will be getting more support later on and is just better in most games... So yes, get a GTX 970 if you can
Looks like an all around good build but get a Z97 Mobo instead of the H97 as I don't think the one you have lets you overclock and you have an unlocked processor for overclocking
If you need any more help then I am always happy to help and as for assembly of the PC there is no better guide than YouTube. Just search up "How to build a Gaming PC" and you are flooded with results.
Happy to help a newcomer
Change parts if you don't like them
I'll answer those in order
Yes, you will need a wifi card if there is no Ethernet port nearby
If you're gaming 8Gb is the most you need at the moment although 16 is recommended for editing and for multitasking a lot
Both of those Mobos are able to support 2-3 way Sli/Crossfire so no troubles there
Always happy to answer more questions as needed
Looks great, Enjoy the system. +1
Looks good, but if possible a G or X series are some of the highest end PSU's from seasonic so I would get them rather than a strider
You click on the arrow that is pointing up at the top of the build page, or you press on the down arrow if you want to downvote it.
That wold do but it might be cutting it slightly close. 700 - 750 would be more suitable and allows for slightly more upgradeability later
A general rule of thumb is to take the wattage that PCPartPicker gives you and add 150ish watts so that the PSU is not at 100% at all times. Based on the 550 the Pcpartpicker gave you a 750 watt would allow the best for your build. A seasonic G-Series 750 would be brilliant then.
That looks like a nice balanced build you've got there. Only thing I might change is to get a SeaSonic PSU as they are one of the highest quality brands out there, for your build I'd recommend a SSR-650RM G-Series 650w PSU as it is definitely enough for an I3 4130 and should allow you room to add a 970 or 980 and a higher end I5 later if you need to and it is a little cheaper than the one you have now.
Okay thanks for the help
If I can't get the SeaSonic one though I'll get the Rm 650 as I know that I can get that at a physcal store near me.
So Seasonic is the way to go?
Cool, I've seen stuff like that done and it is usually impressive
Thank you for the input
I have also read that Seasonic is one of the best PSU brands along with Higher end corsair models and Evga as well
I thought it would be enough wattage but a friend said to get an 860i which was too much for me so I was just checking.
I've seen that combination before and it does look rather awesome
Has no-one else noticed the rugby ball that says "Kappa"
I'll show myself out...
On another note the computer is incredible
Will definitely do so
Once again love the build and will notify you when I do mine
It will probably be red and black (I know its overused)
Happy to help
Going to be doing a build for combined Christmas Birthday present for self and seriously thinking about custom painting absolutely everything as you have done...
Are there any issues you had that may be important to know about? and if there are what precautions would I take to prevent them?
As for the computer, IT IS INCREDIBLE, love the colour scheme and definitely well balanced in the Cpu/Gpu combo
Absolutely a +100 if possible
For a good case I would recommend these:
Corsair 450D, 550D, 230T
Fractal Design R4
Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
Nzxt Source 220
Nzxt Phantom (410, 530, 630)
BitFenix Shinobi Window
I absolutely agree with this
I tried a G502 a while ago and it was definitely a great mouse but I kept accidentally hitting the buttons on the side which was vaguely annoying.
All up to personal preferences though...
And for the computer, It looks golden and nothing much has to be changed, except for the case...
Its not my choice but I just think that case is ugly and possibly a bit large as you would only need a mid tower for a single GPU build...
up to you
Something like this should do you brilliantly
That, Sir, is a rather impressive build
9.5 out of 10
only thing to change is possibly get a Z97 MOBO instead
I've got that graphics card in mind and have actually been trawling Linustechtips for the last few months looking for tips for picking peripherals
Bad luck on the mouse... But as people say A good gamer starts with peripherals
Will update soon when I buy parts, I'm thinking of getting this as a combined Christmas Birthday present for myself and friends of mine have expressed interest in seeing me put it all together
